“For never was a story of more woe. Than this of Mercy and her Roadhog”
That’s how the original went, right?
Overwatch is a story about the greater good and the consequences of uncontrolled power, but did you ever think about the untold love stories that may have blossomed during times of war?
Twitch Streamer MOONMOON shared part of this recording where his Roadhog went after an enemy Mercy; what we didn’t expect was the crushing tale of love between two opposing teams.
MOONMOON’s Roadhog stands before opposing team member Kaileena’s Mercy who tries to egg him on with “Do it, Pussy.”Roadhog refuses, and they both profess their love. Mercy’s team arrive to see their tragic love story come to its climax as Roadhog shoots Mercy in the face and then throws himself off the nearest cliff.
Look, I know that everyone ships S.76 and Mercy but I think that Roadhog and Mercy are the star-crossed lovers that we’ll tell our children about. How that, despite their different ideologies, their love was stronger than the payload in Dorado. How Roadhog’s heart was chained to Mercy and how Mercy healed Roadhog of old wounds. How that despite Mercy’s devilish appearance, she was Roadhog’s heavenly angel.
